If there are communities or neighborhoods that are maybe a little "rougher" or prone to alcohol related problems, the LCBO might choose to open a smaller number of stores there than a private model would.
It's a stretch, to say the least, and I only came up with it because I believe they could make just as much money if they allowed private sales and taxed the crap out of it -- therefore, I don't believe money is a factor.
Well, there's an LCBO store at the seedy strip mall right at the corner of Jane/Finch, which is arguably the "roughest" area of Toronto. To me this "social responsibility" mandate is a bunch of malarkey, an excuse to justify LCBO's existence.
